Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"It is more cost effective and gives more flexibility.""Its configuration and deployment are the most valuable.""The support organization behind this product is extremely professional.""What our customers like the most is that this device is so rugged. It has very good performance and throughput. Its console is very easy to use and has many features, which makes it different from its competitors. Cloud IQ has all the features built into the console, whereas other solutions require you to integrate multiple solutions with their consoles. You don't need to add anything extra with Cloud IQ. With this single solution, you can do almost everything."

"We use the solution for many of our smaller customers and the cloud management aspect of the solution is very good. If you compare it to other vendors that have a controller, it's much easier to manage the cloud-based solution because we travel a lot. It allows us to manage everything from any place.""The indoor WiFi connection works well.""Ubiquiti Wireless is a reasonably priced, easy to use, stable and reliable product.""This is a high-quality solution that allows us to provide wifi access points in challenging areas.""It's very easy to use. The hardware is very easy to use, compared to Microsoft. Microsoft is more complicated. It has software that is okay if you are familiar with it. In my opinion, Ubiquiti hardware is more heavy duty then Microsoft.""One of the nice features is the backup version control.""It's a well priced solution and as far as I'm concerned, it's enterprise class.""I like that it's cheaper and inexpensive. It's also easy to use."

Cons
"Pricing is a bit expensive.""They can improve just the onboarding process. More user information about the introduction to the product would be helpful. It would be good if they have a better user introduction to the new product because it is different than the prior version.""Having a wizard for customers who are just starting might be helpful.""Its price could be lower. It is a simplified solution, but it has price challenges. It is costly as compared to other solutions. It has almost everything. The only thing is that MAC is not possible on the cloud, and it has to be on-premises."

"We tried to create an access point with built-in voice and sound that we could use in schools, for example. We tried to create something that could play sounds or messages out of the access points. We wanted to, for example, use it as a school bell instead of using other equipment. It didn't work very well. It turns out when you connect to the Ubiquiti Wireless access point, it's not possible to send simple messages (like what is going on in the canteen, or some news update for the school, etc.). We had to use the on-premises version, as the cloud version wouldn't allow for this.""Some of our customers have reported problems with their outdoor WiFi connections.""The product lacks some security features.""There is really nothing wrong with the product but there are ways the utility and features can be expanded to meet future demands.""They should make more advanced features for the power users. I am a technician and I am functional, but I do need some features that I find only in Microsoft.""Better third-party integration would be helpful because often, Ubiquity is a product that customers choose after they already have something else from another vendor like HPE.""There's one feature missing and that is automatic channel assignment.""They should have more VLAN features and a designing tool like a link planer."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"I did a multi-year license. It was a three-year license. It compares well with others in terms of the price. It is about a hundred dollars per year on a three-year scale.""It is not the cheapest product but I think that the price is reasonable because you get a lot of support of it's needed.""It is costly as compared to Meraki, Aruba, Juniper, and Cisco. Cloud IQ is an enterprise solution, whereas Meraki is specifically a single solution."

"The price of this solution is ok.""The product is a very good price.""Right now the product is less expensive and of higher quality than other solutions.""The price is reasonable and there's only a one-time payment. We have had this for a long time and I haven't seen any additional fee after paying for the installation.""In South Africa, for some Cisco access points, it will cost you 10,000 Rand ($690 USD), whereas with Ubiquity that same access point will cost you less than 3,000 Rand ($210 USD).""The product is expensive.""Ubiquiti Wireless is affordable."
